vista is good and all but the bugs it has right now, i'll wait

at the moment vista has so many bugs i couldn't even begin to list them

just one example is once you upgrade to vista alot of hardware may not be compatible with vista such as printers and usb drives

There are many different ways. I got Vista Inspirat Ultimatum 2

The sidebar you can find here ---> Vista Sidebar

Visual Tooltip download here ----> Visual Tooltip

ViStart you can download here ---> ViStart

after you have all files and installed them your PC or Laptop looks just like Vista :thumbsup_anim:

VTP7 looks better and i bet has alot more features

here are my perils with Vista.

PC Specs:

AMD Athlon64 3800+ 2.4ghz 512kb L2 cache

2.0GB RAM

240GB total HDD space

Nvidia GeForce FX 5500 PCI 128MB DDR 400mhz vRAM 270mhz GPU

Onboard Realtek alc850 8 channel Sound card

Creative SBLive! soundcard

When I initially installed vista, it was apparent that my creative sound card didnt work. when I did a Windows update, it found the drivers for it, but the audio was really distorted, I did manage to get the XP drivers to work for it, but some of the features were disabled. (Bass and Treble controls) then after a few weeks I got a BSOD

Luckily Nvidia had a vista driver and it worked fine. Printer worked fine, in fact the sound card was the only issue. Also when I installed my Realtek Drivers, half the features of the software that it came with was GONE compared to XP.

Software was fine, except for acid pro. when I ran it and was compsing a song, I would play it back and the playback was horrible. I heard pops and so on. some programs that I wanted to run were incompatible, like my good 'ol comodo firewall.

Eventually I noticed a complete slow down of the OS and file copying seemed like it took forever. the search functionality was nice.

some games were ok on it. quality of graphics was good. but framerate was horrible, I had to turn down the graphics all the way on need for speed carbon just for it to run at a decent framerate.

then I decided it was time to go back to xp. been back on it for about a week now. glad I switched.

In my own opinion is Vista not worth to be installed that's why I stick with XP :thumbsdown_anim:

First of all is Windows Vista not worth the asking price: 4 GB iso or $300 because Vista doesn't have so much new features!

Why?

Almost everything in Vista can be used in Windows XP via 3rd party software!

Photo Gallery: Google Picasa 2 (maybe even better then wpg)

Media Center: Media Portal

Aero - Window Blinds

Flip - TopDesk

.

I'm not talking about Themes, Fonts or System sounds etc.

Many articles about vista stating:

NOT SECURE ENOUGH! (security holes)

NOT COMPATIBLE WITH MANY PROGRAMS/DRIVERS

EATS TOO MUCH MEMORY

RUNS GAMES & PROGRAMS SLOWER THEN Windows XP

USER INTERFACE - HARDER TO REACH MUCH NEEDED FUNCTIONS, LIKE FOR PROFESSIONALS!

And another reason why it isn't worth @ all:

WINDOWS SEVEN SHOULD BE RELEASED IN 3 YEARS, WHY DO I NEED VISTA IF IN 3 YEARS I MIGHT INSTALL SEVEN?

Wow, then what is the reason of working a service pack 1 for windows, instead they should use their time to make the new windows better ! :)

Well, a lot of people bought Vista and expect support for it. BTW, did you know that Vista SP1 will take app 1 GB of your space and will need about 7 Gigs just for the setup?
